The Willows - Maid of Culmore 


nd Fret 


Intro: Am  G  C/G  F 

        Am           G         C/G         F   
Leaving sweet lovely Derry for fair London town 
         C/G G Am  F  G         Am           Em 
There is no  finer harbour all around can be found 
          C/G  G     Am   F  G       Am          Em 
Where the youngsters each evening go down to the shore 
        Am            G               C/G        F 
And the joy bells are ringing for the maid of Culmore 


    Am           G            C/G       F   
The first time I saw her, she passed me by 
        C/G  G    Am F  G        Am         Em 
And the next time I saw her, she bid me goodbye 
        C/G  G    Am F  G       Am               Em 
And the last time I saw her, it grieved my heart sore 
        Am            G         C/G         F 
For she sailed out of Ireland, away from Culmore 


   Am        G         C/G           F   
If I had the power the storms for to rise 
        C/G  G   Am   F    G           Am         Em 
I would make the wind blow out and I'd darken the skies 
    C/G  G   Am   F    G            Am           Em 
I'd make the wind blow high and the salt seas to roar 
         Am          G               C/G         F 
'Til the day that my darling sailed away from Culmore 


Instrumental: Am   G   C/G  F   C/G G Am F G   Am   Em   Am   G   C/G  F 


       Am            G          C/G          F   
To the far parts of America, my love I'll go seek 
         C/G   G Am   F  G       Am           Em 
For it's there I know no one and no one knows me 
    C/G G Am    F    G           Am           Em 
But if  I don't find her, I'll return home no more 
          Am        G              C/G        F 
Like a pilgrim I'll wander for the maid of Culmore 
       Am           G              C/G        F 
Like a pilgrim I'll wander for the maid of Culmore
